With much of the UK and Ireland struggling to carry on amid the adverse weather conditions, here's what Twitter has come up with to keep us laughing.

Swear this is my nephews third snowday in 2018 alone. If a Polar Bear had of walked down the corridor when I was in school, they still wouldn’t have sent us home. #BeastFromTheEast ❄️— Heather Wilson (@hevwilson_e) March 1, 2018
